Local poet! In this work, Sean seeks to claim a space for gay men and all women in Hollywood. Through combining Hollywood lore, representation of gay men and women, and personal experience, he critiques as well as celebrates Hollywood. Inspired by love of movies and The Celluloid Closet, he has created a unique full-length poetry collection. Each section is loosely assembled into genres and themes: film noir, romantic comedies, slasher films, science fiction, dead stars, musicals, and melodramas. Music and television make some appearances, too.
